11 June – Ruttars in Dolegna del Collio (Gorizia), 6 pm
The next concert will be hosted by historic local winemaking firm Jermann, offering a wine tasting with three of its wines. The “Magic Violins” of “G. G. Arrigoni”'s string orchestra, Christian Sebastianutto and Ulisse Mazzon, will be performing music by Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Paganini and Saint Saëns, conducted by Domenico Mason. Guido Barbieri will be the “enorelatore” (wine storyteller) for the event.
A rarely seen location, right in the centre of Udine. Palazzo Asquini's secret garden, which is seldom open to the public, will host the concert “Il prete rosso e le putte della pietà”, the 10th Opera by Antonio Vivaldi. The string quintet from the Solisti da Camera (chamber soloists), with flute player Giuseppe Nova, will come from Alessandria to perform, thus reviving the twinning between Piedmont and EnoArmonie – in collaboration with Alba Music Festival. Wines from Cantina Sociale Barbera Sei Castelli (near Asti, in Piedmont) will be up for wine tastings, presented by oenologist and international judge Ico Turra.
25 June – Mariano del Friuli (GO), 7 pm
“Orient Express” will be the theme for the last concert wrapping up EnoArmonie 2023. Winemaking firm Tenuta Luisa will host the live performance by Martina Biondi (cello) and Margherita Santi (piano), with music by Beethoven, Dvorak and Chopin. Giovanni Bietti, a music educator and a fixture on Italian national broadcasting radio channel RAI Radio3 (and also a professional oenologist) will be the wine story teller of the event, with wine tastings of Tenuta Luisa's own wines.
